This is the distinctive property owned by the Gonet-Médeville family who have been growing vines in Sauternes for three centuries this year. Unlike the other sweet white bordeaux estates, they age the wine in concrete rather than oak and release it only after many years' ageing. Crème de Tête, their best wine, is made only in exceptional vintages and this certainly tasted exceptional. Deep rich tawny in colour is was incredibly rich with strong notes of caramel, almost burnt caramel, and rose petals too. There was quite enough acidity to keep the wine in balance and make a delightful whole even if it is perhaps not quite a complex as Yquem, say.

Château informations
Gilette
Château Gilette is a property of 4.5 hectares located in the heart of the village of Preignac.  Château Gilette is a small vintage Sauternes is legendary for its old vintages. In fact, at Gillette, Julie Gonet-Médeville does not sell his wines after twenty years of aging. . Chateau Gilette yields are extremely low, between 5 and 10 hectoliters per hectare and that nectar must be exceptional to merit the appellation "cream headache" and spend more than fifteen years in cement vats before being bottled and sold a few years later. .
